Rich Franklin Won’t Require Surgery After Suffering Eye Poke

“After losing the decision to Dan Henderson, Rich has some healing to do. He had to get stitches in two spots on his head from the head butt, and stitches on his shin from one of his kicks. Everyone has been asking about his eye — from the eye poke at the end of the fight — and we are happy to say he doesn’t need surgery. He does have a cut on the white part of his eye and a slight tear, but it doesn’t require surgery. Pictures have been posted so you can see what it looks like now.”

– From Rich on the status of Franklin’s eye injury. Franklin suffered the injury after being inadvertently poked by Dan Henderson in their tightly contested battle last Saturday at UFC 93.
